James' and Patricia's report on D.O.C Dão Cabriz, 2012, Portugal. White grapes blend

We say: anyone opening this bottle and expecting to find white wine that is lean, mean and petillant, will be happily surprised by the wine from start to finish. The Beira Alta region of Portugal has progresses in recent years from rustic backwater to sophisticated vinification. The area's vineyards include ideal climate and slope aspects as well as distinctive grape varieties.

The bottle itself is well-designed and elegant with a Cabriz-branded short, dense cork. We chilled the bottle to 8ºC. The colour is a pleasant, clear, yellow-ish straw with no bubbles, viscosity was clean and well-blended. Aroma was somewhat of nectarine and flowers, and slow swishy tasting suggested white grape and yellow stone fruit like apricot. The finish lingers pleasantly with no sudden dropping away, a complexity and uniqueness is present.

We had the wine with a mild, whitefish pie.
